    I just read more about this on a GL forum. Seems that the event starts next year and it´s a civil war of the Corps, or something similar. Better start choosing sides. :p

    I'll choose whatever side is against Hal! Or whatever side Kyle and Guy are on.

    But anyway, did they have, you know, sources?

    They have been hinting at it since before blackest night there is a scene showing Hal vs the guardians. John has several long term plans he's been sneaking hints in for a long time.

    Looking forward to reading this in roughly a year-and-a-half when DC gets the TPBs out, although I might need to get a few singles if they do another ring promo for it.

    Anyway, I'd rather see more development of the ROYBIV Corps and inter-Corps interaction, rather than in-fighting within the GLC. There are also a number of plot threads and ideas Johns has introduced, and seemingly forgotten/dropped, that would be nice to have explored before moving on to a GLC civil war. I also really hope the trigger for this civil war isn't "the Guardians did something stupid and/or are covering up something yet again", since that's long since gotten stale.

    In the current issues Of GL and Corps they show the truce with the Sapphires and the Sinestro Corps. Sinestro will be appearing Heavily in both GL and corps. The red lanterns will be appearing more in Emerald Warriors with one being a member of guy's team. Larfreeze and Attrotious are getting special one shots. Larfreeze is the christmas issue with should be hillarious.

    So guys I was wondering have any other series besides Emerald Warriors been leading us up to this war?

    Guy mentions it as a dream he had of the future.

    and uh teaser image.


    But I'll be checking Rip's chalkboard for more hints into this.

    :lol  it does!

    I just can't wait to see more of Guy and Hal fighting. It's like the reason I read GL at all, to see Guy piss people off.

    Can't wait to see how this plays out. I'm thinking that it'll come to those who side with the Guardians versus those who think the Guardians are no longer capable of leading the Corps. It'll be interesting to say the least. Thanks Johns for turning my favorite DC property into the top tier franchise of the DC Universe.

    I wonder what this means to have the 4 earth lanterns, who house the essence of parallax in their rings, to be fighting each other?

    I hope Hal and John are on the same side for this. That way I'll definitely be safe in rooting against both of them (which will be futile, as Johns would never let Saint Hal be in any way wrong or on the losing team).

    So, if one assumes that the 'malevolent force' mentioned in the solicits is
    Krona
    , seems like "New Guardians" isn't going to have much of an conclusion. Ah well, guess I should have dropped the series immediately after Blackest Night. Anyway, I'll be cheering for Guy and, hopefully, Kyle will be on his team as well. While I'm sure this will definitely end up with Hal SuperSpecialAwesomeBestCharacterEver Jordan being proven 'right', I hope Guy at least gets in a few good licks.

    And, not related to WotGLs exactly, but nice to see more Cyborg Superman, even if the art is godawful.

    They don't anymore. Parallax was
    freed and reintegrated at the end of Blackest Night so the group could use his power to fight BL Spectre. He was subsequently teleported away and is now under the control of Krona.

    I wanna see Hal turn evil again to just to see the look on all those fanboys faces. I mean I like Hal but I would like something different.
